Pedestrian Accidents Are Often Devastating

When we look at the statistics provided by the New Jersey Department of Transportation, we can see that there were more than 270,000 total vehicle crashes in the state during the latest reporting year. The DOT says that NJ citizens face a high risk of pedestrian accident injuries and fatalities, more so than those in other states in the US.

Thousands of pedestrians were injured and 183 were killed in NJ according to the latest year of data available.
